Bootleg Kids Doll
Having had this pattern booklet for a few years and trying once before to make this doll and failed . I was inspired by Liezelmiller's post of her completed doll which looked great .
So i gave it another go and i am so happy i did .
I made her in Caron Simply soft instead of a DK weight yarn as the pattern stated . Julie had sent me some caron a while back and the colours were perfect for the doll. Thanks Julie She is 2ft high and looks brilliant . I am so happy with her .
The pattern is Sally anne from the Bootleg kids booklet by Jacquay Yaxley !

Oh, my, she's just adorable! The detail is amazing! The little bloomers are the perfect touch. Beautiful work -- thanks so much for posting.

She is so cute! I love all the details on the dress, the stripes, trim and there looks like there is a little textured stitch even. The panties are a kick with all those ruffles. I love the purple shoes with the pearl button. They come off don't they? Sweet face too. How do you make that kind of nose? Is it added or somehow made right on?

Thank you I am so glad that you like her.
Her clothes and shoes all come off and the nose is actually knit into the front piece of her face . It is a bobble . She has 4 panels for the head and the front panel has a bobble knitted in the middle . Nothing difficult really

Thank you everyone
